Have a Faith-Filled Easter with His Only Son In Theaters May 31 {+ Win Tickets} #HisOnlySon #AngelStudios #OldTestament #film #Easter #Easterfilm #faithgram #christianmovie

**I received a complimentary screener from Angel Studios for consideration. All thoughts are my own.

Easter is quickly approaching! Walk into any store and you'll find a wide variety of holiday candies, Easter baskets and eggs of every single color. All that is great, sure... and I'm the first to admit that marshmallow chicks and peanut butter and chocolate eggs happen to be some of my favorite candies ever... but that's not truly what the season is about. 

As Christians, we know that we are celebrating the most important event in all of history: Christ's death on the cross and His resurrection three days later. 

That certainly beats out even the greatest of candies or the most magnificent of Easter baskets... but looking around we can see that sometimes that can be a little lost in the celebration of it all. So during this important Easter holiday season, how can we make sure that we are keeping our faith as the center? Here are a few simple ways to do so:

Read the Bible.

Perhaps the most simple thing we can do is to read the Bible with our family. 

Head to Church.

If you don't already have a church home, Easter can be a great time to find one. There's something wonderful about spending time with fellow believers and worshipping God. Look for a church that follows the Bible. 

Get Creative.

There are a number of crafts and recipes out there that can help even the youngest believers to understand what this holiday is about in a way that is both fun and makes most sense to them.

See HIS ONLY SON in theaters March 31. 

HIS ONLY SON is making history by being the 
first movie ever to crowdfund its theatrical release. How cool is it that it's a Christian film too?  The film partnered with Angel Studios—the studio that brought you The Chosen—in 2022 to crowdfund over $1,235,000 for its March 2023 theatrical release. It was initially set to premiere in only around 600 theaters but thanks to raising this amount in under a week and overwhelmingly positive reviews from audience members, it’s now showing in 1,200 theaters and counting! And the timing couldn't be more perfect! 

Take a look:

His Only Son recounts one of the most controversial moments in the Old Testament—when Abraham was commanded by God to sacrifice his son Isaac on the mountain of Moriah. While traveling to the place of the sacrifice, alongside Isaac and two servants, Abraham is flooded with vivid memories from the years he and Sarah spent longing for the son they were promised—the son he must now lay upon the altar.

I was given the chance to check out the movie before its theatrical release and I was so impressed with how well it was done. When you hear that a film was made on a shoestring budget compared with your typical movie budget, well, it doesn't give me high expectations for quality to be honest... but I didn't find that to be true with this movie at all. It beautifully told the story of Abraham in a way that brought the story to life in a new way. 

Abraham's story isn't one that we might initially think of right away when it comes to Easter, but it's very much fitting. There are some great parallels between the sacrifice of Abraham and Isaac and Christ's sacrifice on the cross. It's even believed that Mount Mariah (where Abraham was willing to sacrifice Isaac is the same location where the Temple in Jerusalem was built, where Christ was later crucified. Interesting, right? 

This beautiful story of faith is sure to leave a profound spiritual impact, perhaps being one of the most impactful Easter films in a generation, making it one you'll definitely want to check out with your loved ones. 

It is important to note that this movie is rated PG-13, due to some of the more mature themes of this story. These are the same themes that we know well from the Bible and nothing is depicted on screen that is overtly graphic or anything of that nature, but it's certainly something to consider with younger audiences.
